Are You on the Right Path?

My teenage son just returned from a long hiking trip. He was on the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina–his first “real” hiking trip with backpack, tent, food, first aid kit, etc. (He learned that raw eggs don’t travel well even if you have a burner to cook them.)

They’re frustrated about daily interruptions. They want to make more progress – faster. Of course, in your role, you’ve got to focus on the big goal. […]

Time to Detox Your Team?

How’s the weather where you are? Not the kind of weather that you experience when you walk outdoors, but the weather when you walk in your office. Earlier this year I had a conversation with an employee in a business that was really struggling. He said, “When I enter the office in the morning, I […]

Is your insecurity showing?

“I thought I was ready, but had no idea what I was getting myself into. What if I’m not really cut out for this?” No matter how much experience you’ve had, it’s easy to doubt yourself and wonder if you’re “good enough” to get to the next level. In working with many leaders over the […]
